I started working in downtown Los Angeles in 1946 and although I am now retired, I visit the area occasionally. I want to compliment the downtown business community and the Central City Assn. in forming the new Business Improvement District. In 50 years, I have not seen the streets and sidewalks as clean as they are today. FRANK G. HATHAWAY Chairman of the Board Los Angeles Athletic Club

The Riviera Country Club & Tennis Club, once a favorite haunt of early Hollywood film stars, entered a new era of foreign ownership Sunday with the transfer of full ownership of the landmark 168-acre resort to Marukin Shoji Co. of Japan.

Laaco Ltd., the partnership that currently owns the club, said Thursday that the Japanese buyer has agreed to pay $52.9 million to acquire the minority stake. Laaco will retain the 51% majority interest.
